Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Cut to a lounge where Diana and Alyss are seated next to each other. As the Porcupine fusses over Diana's right arm, Alyss debriefs Diana as Areum looks on.
Caption: We moved to a more comfortable room and so while Monty fussed over my poor abused arm, I filled Alyss in on all that had happened.
Caption: It might have gone faster except for the way she peppered me with questions.
Alyss is looking a bit deflated. Diana's cast looks different. Areum is in the background.
Diana: … So really, it's thanks to our trip to the Mechanic that I now have contacts in a place that could prove advantageous to us later.
Alyss: You … really have been through a lot. Especially your friend, Juan. I will of course cover his medical expenses in full.
Diana looks appreciative; the Panda is walking up holding a tray with a snack and drinks.
Diana: That's … good to know. He should be transferred to a different hospital, though.
Alyss: Yeah. I've trusted Smith & Holder for literally centuries.
Alyss: But they've been compromised somehow, and until we get to the bottom of this ...
Looking past Areum at far left into medium shot of Diana and Alyss, with the Panda walking up holding a tray with a snack and drinks.
Alyss: Oh! But I shouldn't assume 'we,' should I?
Alyss: I wouldn't blame you for bailing out at this point. Things will get even rougher.
Diana: I'm angry enough with these bastards that I'm not afraid of them anymore.
